A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details aren't right, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. When this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you can make several different sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to see the protected folders conveniently either in exactly the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you shall identify them by their tiny padlock icons.
